How can I do logging of every screen sessions

I am using screen utility for couple of years. I just simply love it. In cloud machines I do have multiple screens as I work with a team. I want to log every commands that have been run in every sessions. Suppose there are three screens ex. A,B and C. I want to get A’s all sessions commands and so on.

It would be really great if you can give me a hint or details.

Thanks in advance.

Set the deflog configuration parameter (in ~/.screenrc), then screen windows will be logged automatically.

See info -f screen --index-search=deflog for details
